    Never ending scraps!

    I swear, scraps multiply in the dark! Is there an evil genie at work? Or wait, a good genie who cuts up that box of bigger pieces?

    The top one has polka dot centers (except for the light ones, I ran out of little polka dot blocks), and the bottom one is square, just laying on the floor kind of caddy whompas. Both quilts made with 8"finished size blocks

    Thanks for looking.

    great scrap busters
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very pretty. I made 9 kid sized quilt with scraps. Still had not used up the scraps, so I bagged them up and gifted to my Daughter. That is how I get rid of my scraps.

    Very nice. I like them both.
    I made 2 with my scraps, and I haven't made a dent.

    Nice use of the scraps. I am a firm believer boy color scraps get together in the dark with girl color scraps and more scraps are born. It's the only thing that makes sense to me as to why they multiply!

    My theory is that scraps are like bunnies ....... they just keep multiplying ...... lol ....

    The tops look really nice and the colors are soothing.
